This cat tree by CatastrophiCreations consists of a wall-mounted design, which makes it perfect for homes that are tight on space. This new take on cat tree design is like nothing you’ve ever seen before. Built tough and designed for multi-cat homes, this cat tree is not only sturdy, it’s also incredibly versatile.
This is the ultimate cat tree if you’re searching for a unique alternative to traditional cat trees, which notoriously take up a lot of floor space.
Our Verdict: This wall-mounted cat tree is even tougher than it looks. If you don’t have the space to accommodate a traditional cat tree, then you’ll love what the creators at CatastrophiCreations have come up with. We would highly recommend this for cat owners with larger felines.
Overview and Features
The manufacturer describes this cat tree as hand-crafted, with a space-saving design. Not only will your cats love this tree, but its unique design will instantly make it the focal point of any room.
One of the biggest selling points for this model, aside from its unique wall-mounted design is the fact that you can purchase extra pieces or combine sets from CatastrophiCreations.
The cat tree’s shelves are made out of solid wood. You can choose from onyx, English chestnut, or unfinished wood. Each set also comes with thick, heavy-duty sleeping hammocks in the color of your choice.
This cat tree consists of a few resting spots, scratching posts, toys, and stairs. Perfect for the larger, active cat, the tree encourages your cat to be more active, while still providing a few comfortable spots for your cat to snooze. Additionally, if you have children or dogs, the ability to place the cat tree up high on the wall will give you a little peace of mind knowing your cats can rest undisturbed and safely away from the overenthusiastic family dog.
Covered Sleeping Spaces
The one major drawback for some cat owners is the lack of a covered sleeping space. Cats of any age, especially those new to the home, seek out spaces that are dark and confined because it gives them a sense of security, while also providing the perfect environment for sleep. Unfortunately, this cat tree’s design leaves the cats out in the open, which may cause some cats to avoid using it during the day.
If you’re looking for a traditional style cat tree, or simply a model that comes equipped with a cubby hole or U shaped beds, we recommend the Molly and Friends “Fluffy’s Favorite Premium Handmade 4-Tier Cat Tree. This tree is a four-level model, however, the Cat Mod Climb Track is a better choice if you need a cat tree that won’t take up precious floor space.

You can expect to spend two to three hours assembling this tree. Make sure you use a stud locator when installing. If you fail to anchor the cat tree to the appropriate studs, it can easily get ripped out of the wall when your felines are roughhousing.
The included directions are well-detailed, but if you don’t have the right studs in the perfect spots you may need to tweak the design a little, spacing the stairs differently or you may even need to leave a piece or two off. Most cat owners who ran into this issue claimed that the tree is so versatile, making a few design changes didn’t negatively impact the integrity of the tree.
The Cat Mod Climb’s design fulfills the cat’s natural instinct to scratch and climb. It gives cats the perfect space to run, climb, and file down their nails.
Additionally, the design also helps to prevent any territorial or behavior issues in multi-cat homes by providing cats with the vertical space they need. This type of space allows cats to essentially establish a pecking order. Cats that are considered the more dominant members of the pack will claim the higher perches, while younger, more passive cats will stick to the lower resting spaces.
If you’re having issues in the home when feeding your cats, such as fights amongst the felines, or the family dog is eating the cat food before they’re able to get to it, this cat tree also eliminates that problem. Fortunately, CatatrophiCreations also sells patented elevated feeders, which will keep the cat food safely out of the hands of the family dog or smaller children.

CatastrophiCreations Mod System
The manufacturer’s mod system will allow you to add more pieces to the cat tree in the future. They produce interchangeable accessories that all cat owners will love, such as sisal poles and food dishes.
Mod Bracket Design
To give the cat tree a cleaner look, the manufacturer has included their Mod brackets. These brackets, when mounted correctly, will make the cat tree look as though it’s floating since the brackets themselves are designed to remain hidden.
As we mentioned earlier, if you don’t have the right studs in the right place, don’t worry. The cat tree is very versatile. You can choose to follow the included manufacturer’s design or make some changes of your own. The included fabric is equipped with grommets that are spaced every eight inches. This design works to accommodate stud distances.
